Restoration and body repairs are part and parcel of owning almost any classic car, and classic VW's are no exception with many vehicles currently on the road in the UK having been restored at least once in their lives. Over the past decade classic VW's have appreciated in value and are no longer the cheap utilitarian vehicles they once were. Owning a classic VW, to some, is a serious hobby and investment and here at Retro Custom we fully understand what makes classic VW's so desirable and how to protect your investment.
If your vehicle is suffering from the elements and a little worse for wear or whether it needs a little bit of attention to bring it back up to standard, we offer a range of restoration and repair services to bring your classic VW back to its prime.
From small MOT repairs to full-blown concours restorations, we have the experience and knowledge to repair your classic VW to the high standard it deserves.
If your vehicle requires metalwork repairs, whatever your budget, we can help. We can undertake factory level repairs and put your van back to how it was when it left the Wolfsburg or Hannover factory. Many UK vehicles have been subjected to patchwork repairs over corrosion at some point in their lives and here at Retro Custom, we always remove all visible corrosion and put the areas back to how they should be.
Our extensive experience in restoring and repairing classic VW's means that we understand your vehicle's construction like the back of our hand and how to undertake the best repair possible within your budget. We specialise in localised repairs where the majority of the original metalwork is left untouched and the areas which need attention are cut out and new fresh metal is welded into place, retaining the originality of your vehicle as much as possible.
As many of the repair panels on the market are of varying qualities, we always use the best repair panels possible within your budget and in a lot of cases, we fabricate repair panels from scratch to ensure a perfect fit.
If you are looking to restore your pride and joy, you have come to the right place. We specialise in restoring vehicles according to customers budgets and requirements, whether you are looking for a presentable daily driver standard or a full-blown concours vehicle, we can help turn your dreams and vision into reality.
Having regularly turned out a number of familiar multi-award winning show vehicles on the UK and European show scenes, we understand what is required to build vehicles to the highest level and our extensive involvement within the show circuit means that you can rest assured that your vehicle is in good hands.
It is no secret that classic vehicle restoration is expensive and we understand that not everyone has a large restoration budget. Whatever your budget, we will work with you to give your classic the best possible restoration possible at a price you can afford.
All restoration undertaken is extensively photographed from start to finish and at the end of the project, you will receive a photo book and CD detailing the full restoration of your vehicle to go with your vehicle's history.
